Wim Tapley - Sober (EP)

Sober

When I drink

I sit and think of getting sober

But when I’m sober all I want is that damn high

How long will I walk myself in circles

So paralyzed

 

It’s been 27 hours since I saw you

And I’m dreading when that becomes 28

But for now I start to see the crystal waters

Behind your haze

 

Still look for you in every little corner

Like you’re the one thing that’s still keeping me awake

When my ash is burnt down to the filter

I’ll fade away

 

‘Cause when I drink

I sit and think of getting sober

But when I’m sober all I want is that damn high

How long will I walk myself in circles

So paralyzed

 

I miss the way you made me feel like talking

To strangers that I’d meet along the way

Now I wonder if they smiled and nodded

To get away

 

‘Cause when I drink

I sit and think of getting sober (sober)

But when I’m sober all I want is that damn high (high, high)

How long will I walk myself in circles

So paralyzed

 

So paralyzed

Woah

Behind these eyes

Oh

 

I still drink and sit and think of getting sober

‘Cause when I’m sober all I want is that damn high

How long will I walk myself in circles

So paralyzed

How long will I walk myself in circles

So paralyzed
